Approved training courses have been established to ensure that personnel undertaking stack-emission monitoring are aware of the inherent hazards and risks associated with the job.
Attendance on an approved training course is a mandatory requirement. The course shall be repeated every five years. It is strongly recommended that trainees attend such a course as soon as possible.
The scheme recognises organisations that offer approved training courses that cover hazard identification and risk assessment relating to stack-emission monitoring. Courses cover (as a minimum) the health and safety section of Environment Agency Technical Guidance Note M1.
The approved training providers are:
- Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC)
- Northern Environmental & Monitoring Services (n-e-m-s)
- CSA Group Testing UK Ltd
- Source Testing Association (STA)
- More details of approved training providers are available by contacting CSA Group.
Organisations that have achieved accreditation by UKAS for the MCERTS standard can be found on the UKAS website.
